[Note: Gay Porn Toys do not seem to be massively different to straight porn toys. I know this because I was there for the box-opening… of the toys. All puns unintentional].
They had to close it down because of various SA laws. It was a sad day. So much amusement was gained from that site & its visitors’ requests.
[I would also like it noted that even though they were in the industry, for my birthday they gave me...earrings!]
Now I received the following email from my friends. They are adamant I must sign this petition. I am a bit worried about what putting my name against such a cry of outrage will mean in 20 years time when I am the 1st contender for role of the Secretary General of the UN.
So instead, I urge you to! So that my friends will get off my back, and also out of deep concern for some of you, whose work hours will be significantly affected if the crackdown takes place.
I just found out that that the South African Government, through the Film
and Publications board is planning a complete crackdown on all South African
based adult sites and their visitors. According to this website I found ( http://petition.adultlinks.co.za/), and I quote, "Anyone
caught accessing or sending pornographic material via the Internet or from a
cellphone will end up behind bars."
The website makes a very good point that Children must be protected from
accessing adult material, and that certain types of material should not be
allowed. But it also states that even though there are available systems in
place to do exactly that, that the FPB is simply ignoring this and taking an
attitude of everything must be shut down.
Please visit the site and if you agree with what they say, add your name to the petition.
I have already added my name and am doing my best to make sure that
everyone I know finds out about this, and hopefully by doing this, I can make
some difference in governments half thought out Cowboy tactics.
Please forward this email to your friends (Well to the ones who enjoy
browsing material of this nature).
[Yes, Rev, not all puns throughout this posting were unintentional.]
